Valdivia riding in New York again

Hoping to ride the wave of his victory aboard Ruler On Ice in the Belmont Stakes, jockey Jose Valdivia plans to move his tack to New York beginning next week.

After riding at Aqueduct in the winter and early spring, Valdivia had been splitting his time the last two months between Monmouth Park and Delaware Park. At Monmouth, Valdivia had just two wins and 10 seconds from 51 mounts. At Delaware, he was winless with four mounts.


“I just figured with this kind of victory I should definitely give it a try here,” said Valdivia, who lives in Brooklyn Heights, NY. “I guess I will have to try to carry the wave over.”


Valdivia, 36, said he still plans to ride some at Monmouth, where Kelly Breen, the trainer of Ruler On Ice, is based. “I want to stay close to Kelly Breen and his owner for sure,” Valdivia said.
